ASU Graduate Student Heads International Board
Angelo State University graduate student Amanda Marfisi was elected international president of the Circle K International Board of Representatives during the organization’s annual convention Aug. 4-7 in St. Louis, Mo.
A graduate student in psychology at ASU, Marfisi plans to graduate in spring 2011 with a Master of Arts in industrial/organizational psychology.
“There is no greater honor than to be elected by your peers to serve alongside them in a community service capacity, and at an international level,” Marfisi said. “Being able to help people around the globe, and with a vision of being the world’s largest premier collegiate community service organization, is quite a feat. I can’t wait to help contribute to this ideology.”
Marfisi has held elected positions in Circle K for the past 10 years through her high school and undergraduate college years in Pennsylvania and, more recently, at the sub-regional level in the Midwest serving Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma and Texas.
